Hi skwire, I use your program from a while now and works great!  :-*

I am a programmer myself (begginer) and I am trying to implement this IDropTarget in my application but I can´t find info on this. Well... I find but is all in C++ and it is very hard to me to adapt at Object Pascal (Lazarus).
Maybe you could explain (or point me in the right direction) in how you do in AHK. Maybe this is more easy for my to adapt to my program.

Thanks in advance!

Files 2 Folder uses a very old AHK library which I've attached to this post.

Batch Process multiple files, each to their own folder?
« Reply #254 on: October 28, 2017, 03:22 AM »
Hi,
Isn't it possible to batch process the basic task of File 2 Folder? i.e., I have 10 files name file 1.txt, file 2. text, file 3.txt,.... (one click batch process) and have them each go to folders named 'file 1', 'file 2', 'file 3', etc...
It would seem very useful when you want to run the basic File 2 Folder action but on multiple - and in my case hundreds! - files in one step?
Thanks,
chumbolito

Sounds like a job for my File Punter app:  http://skwire.dcmemb...fp/?page=file-punter

skwire, if I was able/capable of using it, maybe, but from the screenshot alone I can tell I won't. Don't know what 'regular expressions' are? Thank anyway, I'll now have a look at the one tomos posted.
Thanks anyway to both!  :)

Skwire,

Would you consider a feature request for Files2Folders. Ah, Files2Folders-- the code that saved our world from Armageddon. They teach the children of it, and it provides our people solace in trying times.

Anyway!

Sometimes I want the "target folder" to be created in a different directory than the one I'm in. Can a list of 10 recent directories or so be kept in a pick list and defaulted to the last-used? Also, and I'm not sure how this'll grab ya, sometimes I'd like the target directory to named for me. Can some random string, or perhaps a timestamp, or a combination be generated to offer me that option. These two features are great when weeding a directory (like "Downloads" that may not have been cleaned for a bit...) and wanting to keep the files, but get them out of my face, and put them in the canonical place I keep those files.

Again, loves me the Files2Folders, even without this goosing. If there even IS another computer program, I've never heard of it!

Most of these options, or close to it, are available when you select multiple files.  Have you seen that dialog?

Hi Jody, and thanks again for F2F.

Yes, I see what you mean about using the timestamping for the folder creation. That's fine for me, actually, for the "create a distinct-folder" times.

What I'd love is a way to keep around 10-20 well-known (or, secondarily, recent-- but configured is better) directories. Here's one use case of a couple:

The Downloads folder always collects files of a few types: PDFs, MP3s, soundfonts, ZIPs of various sorts, documents from work, etc. There's places for each of these things (even directories where "downloads" accrete, outside of the standard Downloads folder. For example, if I've downloaded some installers that I want to keep around, I might move them to a well-known but different places. Is there a way to do this, that I'm missing? Typing a long path or remembering (and losing) what's in the copy buffer are more dodgy than creating that list once-in-blue-moon.

Also, sometimes I'll explode a ZIP on the desktop or similar and want to re-constitute a different resulting folder in the canonical place (removing .DS_STORE, manuals for languages I don't speak, etc.). I know where I want that new folder to go, but it's somewhat multi-step to get it there.

Lastly, in my particular case, it could theoretically be better if F2F didn't quit between iterations, but that perhaps complicates things horribly, and it's not like F2F is slow or anything. But, could a flag be sent on startup that tells F2F to re-initialize, but stay resident between iterations? (There are hours where I'll go a-cleaning, and this could help one iota). Keeping it stateless has it's charm, so feel free to say so.
